Goodreads asked Gil Roscoe:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Gil Roscoe The idea for Memory's Son came from my working backstage as an assistant stage manager for the play Equus. In the play there is a discussion of the importance of our first memory and the great effect it can have on our lives. I wanted to dig deeper into that idea and make the search for that first memory the central problem of a novel.
